Unless I am mistaken, The Grateful Dead never made a substantial amount of money selling records in the first place, and to my knowledge , only had one best seller.

The majority of their wealth has come from Shows, T-Shirts and Dicks Picks albums to a lessor extent, which as far as I know, died when dick died.

What I see here is pure greed, and an attitude that was displayed in court by Debra, that had nothing to do with Jerry's or the "then" band members wishes.

Funny how $$$$ changes people!

Mountain Girl, where are you when we need your voice?

I read the McNally statement just before going to bed last night. I wanted to post, for the first time on this topic, to simply say- blow it out your a** McNally. But I didn't. I went to sleep. The I woke up, went to work, had my coffee and logged back on to LMA, knowing fully that by now, many others must surely feel the same way as I did last night after reading that article. Well, I shouldn't of wasted any time... Blow it out of your a** McNally.

This site has brought together everyone of us who were active in other GD trading venues, but not all of them at the same time. This site has given us the valuable, highly listenable, shows along with the reviews section... which I now realize, are just as important as the shows themselves! We had feedback from those who were there, those like the fellow before this post who worked on public radio and interviewed McNally (maybe he was abducted by aliens?....and, as a side note, I bought my copy of the book from your welcome Dennis). Heck, I wouldn't even be surprised to find out that Phil or any other band member might be part of this conversation right now! The LMA, with all of its' GD content and active fan interraction, is exactly the type of vehicle that can preserve this band's legacy for an eternity. And that should make everybody happy- both fans and band members.

Listen up Grateful Dead and give back the music to the LMA. Do it for those whom haven't heard it yet and for us fans, who wouldn't mind hearing it just one more time.

Thank you LMA.
